And more....

Well, like I said, they all wanted one, so guess how I kept busy today! I must say, I do have cute boys. :>) I hope you have all been creative in some way today. If you have, add a reply to this blog. Whoever I think was the most creative will get a prize. The winner will be posted on Wednesday. (I'll give you until Tuesday to be creative...sure hope you came in to give Lisa a rub!)

Oh Elmo!

This cute elmo photo holder is perfect for showing off a special photo. I didn't put the finishing touches on it until this morning. I have 3 boys, and as soon as I added the name and the photo the other two boys wanted one made for them too....including the 15 year old!

You can make one yourself at the Oh Elmo class on April 15th from 6pm to 8pm. The cost is $15 for non members and only $5 if you are a member of the Quickutz die cut club. Please call or drop in to sign up. You will need to bring a paper trimmer, a glue pen, 3d foam adhesive or pop dots, and regular adhesive.

Enjoy the weekend!

Easter is coming!!

Well, we all know that Spring has arrived, and pretty soon it will be Easter weekend!

In April I will be doing a cute Easter Bunny layout, that is sure to be perfect for all
those Egg Hunt photos.

This class has already proved to be very popular, and our initial count has filled up. I have
extended the class count, and have chosen different pattern papers to be used for those that
will sign up from this point forward. If you want a peek at the new papers, just pop into the
store and take a look. They are hung on the wall with the original layout.

Silhouette Sell Off

I was able to get my hands on a few more of the OLD version of the Silhouette. I've emailed those who had expressed an interest and now there are only 2 left. I'm selling them for $179.99. If you are interested please let us know right away. I'll be putting them up on the website if they are still lurking around by Monday.


Have you seen...

These have been in the store for a few days now, but just in case you haven't been in, here is a peek at some new Penny Black and Northwood stamps as well as new Maya Mists. Some of the Penny Black stamps from the design boards sold out before we could even get them on the shelf. Think of all the work it would save us if that happened all the time! I will be placing another Penny Black order soon, so if you have any requests please let me know.

This next class is perfect for anyone who is in need of working on boy pages, so come on out and have some fun!

Product Update

The boys and I are enjoying the sunshine streaming into the livingroom at home today, but I thought I'd better send you an update on some of the new items that are now out on the shelves. Kim is at the store today, madly trying to get the Tuesday Special up on the web AND keeping all those Tuesday scrappers under control, but I'm sure she would love even more company to show the new product off too. She is good at that, isn't she! Anyway, here is a peek..

New Bo Bunny which I already told you a little about. It is awesome! Especially if you need BOY papers. We also received some new Edgy Books, chipboard albums with different shaped edges. 3 Bugs came too and they also have some cute boys things. St Patty's day is coming and so is easter, so we loaded up on some old favorites and some new papers in those themes. If you like Bazzill's Just the edge cardstock, new shapes arrived. Die Cuts with a View paper packs are a great way to get a lot of beautiful paper at a great price. More lovely loose glitter papers came from them as well, but alas have not yet made it out of the box. And last but not least, the new SILHOUETTE is here! I'm working on the website between play time today, so you will see new items up there soon. Meanwhile, I'm off to play Trouble with the know, the kind of trouble that is "lots of fun!" Pop - o -matic pop the dice, pop a six and you move twice!!

Enjoy the day!
